Many of society’s biggest challenges are social dilemmas in which individual interests are at odds with collective welfare. Reputation is a possible decentralized, costless solution. However, when considering the complexity of human sociality, the potency of reputations is diminished. The purpose of this talk is to delineate the inadequacies of extant theories of reputation-based cooperation and elucidate how they can be improved thanks to Goal Framing Theory and social networks.
